SEA, TEXAS. Sea was a post office community seven miles southwest of Crockett near the site of what is now Porter Springs in southwestern Houston County. It was probably established after the Civil War. A post office operated there from 1873 to 1876; in the mid-1870s the small community had a store and a number of houses. By the mid-1930s the community was no longer shown on highway maps, and no trace of it remained in 1990.
